Trademark Practice

Law 211P



Writing Experience (WE)



This course is designed to introduce students to the practical skills necessary to help clients identify, keep and use trademarks. In this seminar, we will explore trademark law through practical exercises and writing assignments. We will work on a client matter throughout the semester. Our client will require a search and opinion letter on the availability of a trademark for use in commerce and registration at the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). We will have the opportunity to review a commercial search report provided by a leading trademark search company on our client's proposed trademark.

This will be an upper level Intellectual Property course.

Trademark Law (See note below for Spring 2014)

Typically, Trademark Law is a pre-requisite for this Trademark Practice course.  However, Trademark Law (LAW211) is being offering during the Spring 2014 semester rather than in the Fall 2013 semester.  Students may take both classes (Trademark Law 211 and Trademark Practice 211P) during the Spring 2014 semester.  Therefore, for Spring 2014, Trademark Law is a co-prerequisite or pre-requisite for Trademark Practice (LAW 211P).
